Eleventh Physics Summer
FRONTIERS IN NUCLEAR PHYSICS -
FROM QUARK-GLUON PLASMA TO SUPERNOVA
12th-23st January 1998
The National Centre for Theoretical Physics is organising a Summer School on Frontiers in Nuclear Physics - From Quark-Gluon Plasma to Supernova for a period of two weeks beginning 12 January 1998. This School is the eleventh in an annual series on various topics in physics intended for postgraduate students of Australian and New Zealand universities. Participation of advanced undergraduate students and research workers from universities and research laboratories is also encouraged.
The aim of the School is to expose the participants to current developments in nuclear physics driven by new experimental facilities (e.g. radioactive ion beams, CEBAF/TJNAF, RHIC), as well as by cross-fertilization with astrophysics and particle physics. The lectures will start at an introductory level and later build up to a stage where the participants can appreciate the challenges of current research fields. The courses and lectures have been planned to be suitable for both theorists and experimentalists. A tentative programme of the School is enclosed.
There will be four lectures per day (five days a week). Therefore, plenty of time will be available for individual study, review of lecture notes and informal discussion among the participants and lecturers. The School period has been reduced from the usual 3 weeks to 2 weeks, and as a result, it will be more focused and intense. We encourage the participants to attend both weeks to take full advantage of the material presented
For any queries please contact the Convenor, or the Secretary, Department of Theoretical Physics.
